You know you’re spending too much time on the web when you read something that piques your curiosity but then forget where it was because you’ve surfed a thousand sites since.

Anyways, wherever it was, someone had posed the following question –

Can Hackers Legally Break Into Sites That Don’t Post ‘Warning’ Notices?

There were many answers, many of which seemed to concur that hackers did indeed have free reign to do as they pleased on websites that didn’t expressly say they couldn’t.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.

Of course it isn’t true in the slightest.

I remember such a claim being pushed around in a hoax email back in my early days on the web (the early 90s) and it was untrue then as it is now.

If you own your domain name and pay for your hosting then the content on your website is yours and woe betide anyone who messes with it!
